Gauge Fields and Strings. General ideas on AdS/CFT duality 

Carlos Nunez, Swansea University

I will discuss the idea of what is called the Maldacena conjecture or AdS/CFT duality, trying to use mostly the language of quantum field theory. Some applications of the duality will be discussed. The presentation will be (hopefully) pedagogical with an emphasis on the general ideas.
